I am a solo female traveller and it challenged me in many ways, its easy to travel in an English speaking country but to be immersed into a non english speaking area where the... More

We took the one day hilltribe day tour. Was nice. The first stop was a staged museum type area showcasing all tribes, which was very nice. Then we went to two actual hilltribe villages. The last one was best. We chatted with the locals and saw a way of living so different from our own. The guide and driver were... More

I was a solo female traveler for a 4 day/3 night tour from Chiang Mai up to Chiang Rai, Chiang Saen, The Golden Triangle, the Thai/Burma border at Mae Sai, a home stay with my guide's Karen family, stops at several hill tribe villages, Doi Angkhang Royal Agricultural Station, and Doi Suthep before arriving at my guesthouse in Chiang Mai....

We would never have done a trip like that and seen these tribes on our own. Anan was great company and knowledgeable plus very good English.

Visiting Baan Tong Luang is worth a look even though it is set up for the tourist. It is a good way to see the various hilltribes. Our guides took us off the beaten/tourist track and we were able to meet and learn from the hilltribe farmer first hand. Our guides Sak and Letu were just adorable. Their English and... More

My husband and I took the 4 day 3 night Chiang Rai tour with Thailand Hilltribe Holidays in November 2015. Prior to our trip, our dealings with the company were positive. All correspondence was dealt with promptly and our requests were attended to immediately. Sak and Goh met us at the agreed time at our guesthouse in Chiang Mai. Initial... More

Hi Gemma, thank you for leaving a review. I’m glad to hear that there were many positives about your trip, such as the amazing hill tribes, safe driving and seeing things you could not have otherwise seen on your own. I’m sorry and surprised to hear that the homestay experience tainted this, as you mentioned the homestay is always the... More

Although American, we live in Asia and have had the opportunity to travel with and without guides throughout the region. Of utmost importance to us is the opportunity to interact with people, get a sense of their culture, and find a way to contribute. We are neither into buildings nor into drive-by site bagging. The tours we have enjoyed the... More

Thank you for this amazing day. If you want to see the real Thailand, this is the tour to do. Sun and his training guide took me to real villages in the hills. I saw farmers cutting their crop and drying the rice. And so many other real life day to day events. Loved every minute of today.

My husband and I spent a great day with Anan and trusty driver Chi. Anan is a wonderful guide, warm and engaging and informative. This company was a great fit for us. We were curious, and wanting to learn about the hilltribe cultures in northern Thailand, but we were not wanting a "tour" in the typical sense. Our day with... More
